David, only nine at this time, is forced to escape his native homeland of Iran with his family. They leave everything behind but each other, escaping to the United States in hopes of beginning a new life in a vastly different culture. In the years that follow, a young David Nasser feels isolated. He seeks acceptance from his peers, turning to everything imaginable to fit in, but always feeling like an outsider. However, David only finds true acceptance, at the age of eighteen, when through the persistent witness of a body of believers, David receives salvation and purpose through a deep and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
